Health and safety
Safety is our top priority in Statkraft and our objective is zero injuries for both our own employees, contractor personnel, suppliers, partners and third parties. The desired safety culture shall permeate the entire organisation and be characterised by transparency and a desire to learn - both from our own mistakes and from successful improvement measures.
Unfortunately, there were two fatal work-related accidents in 2014 in connection with Statkraft's activities. Both accidents took place in development projects, one in Albania and one in Panama. In total, 106 lost-time injuries and 170 injuries overall were recorded among the Group's employees and contractors in 2014. This corresponds to an injury frequency rate (TRI) of 5.5 and lost time injury rate (LTI) of 3.4.
Follow-up of health and safety is a line responsibility in Statkraft. This means that each unit has an independent responsibility for efforts and follow-up relating to the health and safety performance. Clear requirements and guidelines, health and safety awareness in all situations and close follow-up in both operating and project activities are important elements of the effort to achieve good health and safety performance.
